A persistent rumour that shows no signs of letting up is that of Marco Silva’s desire to bring former colleague Andre Carrillo to Goodison after working with the winger during his time at Watford. Portugese outlet Record have reported that Silva ‘insists’ on bringing the Peruvian to Everton this summer, despite also reporting that no contact has been made between Besiktas and the Blues.
Record claims that Carrillo has been a specific request from Silva and that the 27-year-old’s existing relationship with the boss should set Everton as firm favourites to secure the signing. Besiktas are rumoured to want a permanent exit for Carrillo in a deal that could be worth €20 million, especially due to his highlight World Cup performances. The Peruvian international made 38 appearances on loan for Watford in the 2017/18 season whilst registering 5 goals and 2 assists.
An interesting feature of Carrillo’s abilities is that he can operate in any position across the supporting attack line, whether it be on the right-wing, left-wing or central-attacking midfielder. This flexibility could provide a great asset to Marco Silva’s Everton side and if the deal does come off at the estimated €20 million, he should prove to be an excellent acquisition for the new boss.
